Cat Survives 30-Day Trip in Moving Box From Va. to Hawaii

Posted:

SUFFOLK, Va. (AP) - A cat has used up at least one of its nine lives after surviving a month-long trip in a moving box with no food or water.

Ashley Barth tells WAVY-TV (http://bit.ly/1tLTngg) her cat Mee Moowe disappeared in September as movers packed her family's belongings for a move from Suffolk, Virginia, to Hawaii.

Thirty-six days later, the boxes arrived in Hawaii. Barth says she heard a faint "meow" as the boxes were unloaded. Mee Moowe was in one of the boxes.

Barth says the cat had lost half her body weight and could barely walk.

WAVY says a veterinarian office in Hawaii that treated Mee Moowe reported the cat exhibited classic symptoms of starvation.

State veterinarian offices in Virginia and Hawaii told WAVY it's unlikely a cat could survive 36 days without food or water, but not impossible.
